Fixing the economy
As you know, America is saddled with an economy in shambles: out-of-control spending, excessive debt, and high joblessness. The fixes that our administration previously implemented haven’t worked. As anticipated, the GOP has rejected the administrations jobs bill; our administration’s plan to levy a higher tax on the rich wouldn’t generate enough revenue to fix our economy, anyhow. Higher taxation of the rich would only cause them to layoff some workers to compensate for the additional tax … causing joblessness to increase even more.
People have taken to the streets in hundreds of American cities to protest — although most of them can’t articulate a compelling reason why — presumably, their frustration with the state of our economy and their misconception that the greediness of the very rich is a large part of the problem.
Still, no one has been able to come up with a realistic solution to our economic and joblessness crises. Oddly, the solution has been right in front of us for some time:
Tax reform! Wait a minute! America is going down the tubes and the best solution to America’s problems is tax reform? Yes, tax reform — actually ‘tax replacement’ — will cause a natural redistribution of money, and infuse our economy with an abundant revenue-flow by removing the burden and restrictions of our current tax system. By increasing our revenue-flow, desperately needed jobs will be created. Our economy will be given restored life.
Tax replacement can be agreed to and supported by all political ideologies: conservatives, liberals, independents, or whomever. Admittedly, there are those from the left and right who will try to make this a partisan issue; mostly for self-serving reasons. They need to be told that replacement of the IRS income tax system is the one thing that will revitalize the American economy and get Americans back to work.
We’ve been hearing rumblings of tax reform for years and years. But, aside from the customary political rhetoric, the application of yet another bandage on our tax code, and a lot of empty promises, nothing ever really gets done. At times, it seems that cronyism and ‘good-ole-boy’ politics mean more than the things that are best for Americans. Fortunately we have people and organizations dedicated to restoring ‘politics’ to what it should be. But, until we have accomplished that, we will just have to tolerate ‘politics-as-usual’.
Many people will say that ‘tax reform is not now a priority; creating jobs and fixing the economy are’. Again, by implementing tax replacement now … these priorities will be fixed.
Together we can restore America’s economy and get Americans back to work. Replacement of the IRS tax system is the best way to do it.

Well, Well, Well
The “truth” about our differences as Americans is now being shown and told! The majority of Wall Street protesters look like hoodlums, throwing trash wherever they are and even protest against our Capitalistic system.
Most have no idea what they are protesting, they are just trying to be the new “60s” hippies. Have you noticed the difference in most of them and the Tea Party rallies where men and women act like gentlemen and ladies, none throwing out trash for others to clean up? Tea Partiers carry patriotic signs that show a genuine love for our country, not the opposite. I was always taught that trash leaves trash. Decent people do NOT litter!
Which one do you want to identify with? Think about it!
Now we have the racist charges answered in a way even the most left wing liberal should understand. Tea Parties support Herman Cain!
The last time I checked he is black, not white. Our dislike of President Obama has never had anything to do with his race, it has to do with his policies. If liberals would examine the direction the Democratic Party is going, they would understand why there is no longer an official Socialist Party nominee.
The man who ran on multiple occasions as the Socialist candidate stated that we no longer needed that to occur. Reason given: The Democratic Party has taken up their agenda and plans, moving so far to the left that it is no longer the same party many voted for in the past.
He obviously is now a Democrat.
The writer of “Sounds Good, No Facts,” should look at his Democratic Party, how can their moving toward the Socialist Party or worse be acceptable?
Is this the America you want for your children? No Thanks!
If you take an honest look at the politics of the day, it is liberal vs. conservative, bigger government vs. smaller government, and to highlight the most important difference: What party fights against having God removed from our culture?
Yes, it’s time to look at the facts, no more class warfare which was all the so called “Jobs” bill was about, to instill class warfare, divide and conquer. I was also taught that you can judge people by the company they keep.
Take a serious look at both Democrats and Republicans to see where you choose to be. God Bless America!

Just the facts, man
Perhaps, it might be useful if the members of The Socialist-Marxist Party picked up a book now, and then. They might just be able to argue on the facts, and not just hot air.
May I suggest: Dupes by Paul Kengor; The Liberal Mind by Lyle Rossiter; A Thousand Splendid Sons by Klaled Hossini; Kite Runner by Klaled Hossini; Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky; Rules for Radical Conservatives by David Kahane; The Law by Fredric Bastiat; Self Study on Political Islam; The truth about Muhammod by Robert Spencer; One Globalism by George Soros; The Bubble of American Supremacy by George Soros; America for Sale by Jerome R. Corsi, PH.D., Shadow Party, Shadow Government by David Horowitz former Liberal}; Blueprint by Adam Schrager and Rob Witwer; 5000 Year Leap; The Writings of Fredric Douglas; The Road to Serfdom by F. A Hayek; Philip Dru Administrator by Edward Mandell House; Plus a few hundred more. Then you might be qualified to state facts.
Fact 1. Socialism, and Marxism are so great. Why? Did as many people as could escape from Cuba flee to America for refuge?
Why has 25 percent of Mexico fled their country? Why are most doctors in America of foreign descent? Why are citizens worldwide fighting to live in America?
Why was the Berlin Wall torn down? Marxism thrown out of Russia?
Why would we want either one of these failed systems in America? Give me a logical explanation, not mouth. Just facts, why socialism is right for America.
Fact 2. SS and Medicare are bankrupt due to the raid on those funds by the federal government. Where will the replacement money come from? Turnips? We are printing money daily. Money becomes less valued every day? When it reaches zero, what comes next?
Where was it stated that the Republican Party is without blame? I will admit to its faults, when will you admit to Democratic (Socialist-Marxist) faults?
I am angrier than any liberal about Wall Street. Hedge funds, and derivatives are legal but immoral, and must be gotten rid of, along with the Federal Reserve. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Chuck Schumer are responsible for the Fannie, and Freddie debacle. They must go straight to jail. There are videos of committee meetings showing them poo-pooing the idea of curtailing those sub-prime loans, they would not allow it. Those poor people need homes. Talk about bleeding heart liberals. Soft –headed might be more appropriate.
Who’s paying for that bit of wisdom?
If you should decide to pick up a book, pray that not one drop of blood is shed in America, while you read. Socialists are pushing for chaos as their signal to impose martial law, and implement global law. The next day your dollar will be worth nothing ask the Germans}, the Amero is in the wings waiting to replace the dollar (See: America For Sale).
Another small item already in place: SDR’s, Special Drawing Rights.
Any broke half-baked nation, can draw out money from the World Bank, in any amount with no way of ever paying it back. How, long can this go on? (see America For Sale).
Globalists have big plans in place to take over the world. Socialists: keep your head in the sand. Good thinking. The Globalists will not find you that way. Now, the Jihadists will probably find you, when they do their beheading ritual. Depends on which faction wins the battle of ideologies. Which do you prefer?
Which form of enslavement is your choice?
You can deny, deny, deny, ‘til the cows come home, but when it happens, it is too late to pull your head out of the sand. Ask the Germans, Cubans, Venezuelans, North Koreans, and the scores of other enslaved peoples around the world.
The world is being transformed, and you are worried about your puny SS and Medicare. There will be none of that after the upheaval. Sorry, Charlie.

Why the deductibles?
Maybe the Wall Street occupiers could get an answer from the CEOs they are harassing on a question that keeps coming to mind. Why do we have deductibles on our auto, home and health insurance policies?
After we pay for the insurance, we must pay more before we are eligible to receive its benefits. Insurance is supposed to spread the misfortune of the one over the good fortune of the many. Deductibles are a misfortune for all policy holders but an obvious good fortune for the insurance companies. And why is there no deductible on life insurance?
Also, history teaches us that political power only responds to an equal or greater political power. Since our Congress is out of control and nonresponsive to our wishes and needs, maybe the Tea Party could have their few congressional members, as a bloc, file a petition with the Supreme Court. The petition would request the court to review the constitutional validity of the power of Congress to create rules and procedures which permit its members to obtain long, lucrative careers in office at the expense of We the People and our economic activities. Does this misuse of congressional power reflect the true purpose and intent of our Constitution? Our Equal Powers Doctrine would get a good workout and we may regain control of the 535 self indulging politicians who have captured our Capital.
